Users of Windows 98 and Windows 98 Second Edition can pick up Windows Me Promotional Step-Up for £39.99 until 15 January 2001, after which a £79 price tag will prevail.

To upgrade from Windows 95 costs £79, while those buying the full product will have to part with £149.

Aimed primarily at home users, Windows Me features improvements over the current Windows 98 operating system in areas including PC maintenance, digital media, home networking and Internet access.
